If you want to learn about and weigh in on the future of Ballard development, there will be an open house about proposed design guidelines next Monday, Oct. 29 at the Ballard Library. The new guidelines are in response to the substantial changes in Ballard in recent years.
“Please join us to review and comment on the proposed new Ballard Neighborhood Design Guidelines that will help shape future development in Ballard,” David Goldberg from the City of Seattle Office of Planning and Community Development said in a statement. The open house will include information about new neighborhood-specific design guidelines which will guide Design Review Board in reviewing proposed commercial and multi-family residential projects in Ballard.
The Ballard Alliance’s Urban Design and Transportation Committee and other neighborhood stakeholders helped provide input for the past four years to produce the Ballard Urban Design Framework. The new framework is intended to make changes to development standards that will “reduce building bulk”.
“Now we need your input as we prepare the final Ballard Neighborhood Design Guidelines proposal that will be transmitted to the Seattle City Council early next year,” Goldberg said.
The meeting will be held from 5 to 7pm at the Ballard Library (5614 22nd Ave NW).
